Vandals Target Student-Run Farm In Morgan Hill

by Devin Fehely

MORGAN HILL (KPIX) — On Sunday, someone broke into a small farm connected to Live Oak High School in Morgan Hill.

The vandals appeared to be targeting Future Farmers of America and may have been animal-rights activists. They let several cows out of their stalls and left behind graffiti that said “FFA Kills.”

School officials say they could have hurt the very animals they were protecting.

“They (the animals) could have been killed. They could have killed someone if they were hit by a car. If this was activism, we’ll have to take that under consideration. But we want to send a clear message that letting livestock out really isn’t safe for anybody,” said Kimberly Beare, a spokeswoman for the Morgan Hill Unified School District.

It’s the second time in less than a year that this farm has been targeted and the school now plans to install security cameras.

  1. Now we know why the government regards so-called animal rights activists as terrorists. There was a time when I thought Senator Feinstein was overstating this, but she was absolutely right. These people do not care about animals; they only care about themselves and raising money for their terrorist groups. This group’s actions – letting animals out of their pens to be hit by cars – are not speech and are not protected by the First Amendment. MUCH more security is needed at this school than just cameras. School also needs better locks, and closer daily monitoring of the animals, with visits at random times, so that the animals are never alone for long and so that the terrorists cannot be sure when a student or staff membe will drop by. The FFA needs to teach kids to protect their animals from animal rights terrorists.
